of the year, we got over the fiscal cliff, we got over the debt ceiling issue and the world continued to operate, and people are feeling pretty good about that. but short of that and the money printing, there's really not a lot of great news on the earnings front. >> are you looking for a sizable correction? if you say the stock rally can't continue or go much higher, are you looking for a treading water kind of scenario? >> it's hard to know whether this is a fizzle or pullback, but the more important thing is if you have 3, 4% earnings growth, i don't see how you could get the market to continue the pace of the run you've had so far. and if you look at what's running it's the defensive -- >> healthcare. >> the cyclical things, the tech sector, energy sector are expected to havier over year decline in earnings. >> make me some money here. from this point forward to the end of the year, what sector do you think can outforeman what you seem to be saying is going to be a relatively flattish market? >> i like the consumer sectors. i think it's going to be a little bit of a rough earning
with the president in a way that they did not what we face the crisis in 2011 when the debt ceiling was looming. i was a wake-up call for both of us. we could not just assume that congress would avoid defaulting on our full faith and credit. the business community realized they should help congress what was at stake. we have an alignment of interests. i am not going to say we will always agree but despite tensions you may have heard of whoever anyone supported in the presidential race, the president has always had an open door. within the week after the president invited in a cross-section of business leaders and asked for help as we face the fiscal cliff and the sequester and debt ceiling. door anded the provided opportunities for us to work together. >> another issue area in which gay ande revolve involved -- th lesbian community. you have been an advocate of same-sex marriage for a longer time than the president. about yourl us conversations with him on that issue and how his thinking eve alt -- evolved? he did come around. >> i have been a supporter of same-sex marriage. i have a 27-year-old d
of a fiscal cliff of a debt ceiling crisis in the u.s. so the picture is relatively clean from the macroeconomic policy risks that we've been worrying about a lot for the last year. >> okay. interesting discussion. thank you so much, bruce and bob. bruce kazman of jpmorgan and bob doll of nuveen 8 management. >>> north korea showing no sign of backing down in its stand with south korea and the united states. today north korea moving a medium-range missile similar to the one you see here to its eastern coast, minus the music. the missile does not have the range to reach the united states, but it could hit the u.s. territory of guam as well as south korea. and even japan. >>> let's turn now to market focus. investors were buying up at best buy today. it was the biggest gain attorney s&p 500, thanks to a vote of confidence from samsung is. the two companies said samsung will open mini stores in 1400 best buy locations. best buy shares surged more than 16%, up 3.48 to $25 and change. quite a rebound. best buy shares have more than doubled year to date. >>> a big management change t
to raise the debt ceiling. republicans will demand all or for dollar spending cuts to any debt limit increase. the white house will demand new revenues in return for any spending cuts and we will be right back where we were in 2011 which is markets going haywire, losing steam on the economic recovery because we just can't raise our borrowing limits. you think will have another debt ceiling fight, and if not how do we get around? >> a great question and i think it should've been mentioned earlier, the timing of the so-called grand bargain icing, agreement with the president and republicans in congress. i think the timing is alive and i think it's crucial we get done before then to ensure we don't get into another debt ceiling crisis. because it would be detrimental to the economy. by the way, if you look at what moody's and s&p and phipps say about the debt limit, they don't just say let's not go into this, they say let's resolve the problem. in other words, sometimes on wall street, avoid conflict at all cost. that doesn't avoid issue. back and make it worse. in other words, sometime
and with the debt ceiling. if anything bad happened, even if it was unrelated, let's say the reduction in our credit rating. the republicans got the blame. obama assumed it would happen with the sequester so he went after all the stuff that would be really appalling like denying iowa tots a visit in the white house and opening the border and it turned out look they are spending $3.5 trillion a year and you can't have a tour of the white house and you have to end up laying off the border security people? it's absurd. so the blame was headed the administration's way and thus the pots of gold all of a sudden have been discovered in every agency in government. it's easter miracle. >> bret: today, steve, jay carney said other things can be done, changes. the furloughs can be changed. mean meanwhile, you know, just weeks ago there was no flexibility. none. >> this is the story. this is now the story of the sequester is you had the administration complaining they didn't have flexibility when they were offered flexibility rejecting that flexibility. as charles said finding within all these agencies and else
's debt ceiling or sequester. whatever was happening, it's a presidential election. he's going to campaign. and then when he would go out and campaign on different eaches whe legislation, mitch mcconnell will come out and say that he's out campaigning and he should come back and lead. they don't like when he gets out in the court at all but it shouldn't be a kind of radical statement to say that, yes, it would be easier for him to govern if democrats controlled congress and the only way he's going to get to put into place the final legacy is if democrats control congress in the last two years. >> angela, we're seeing that he's scheduled more events than he did midterm in his first term in 2009 and 2010. does that indicate that he thinks he can win back the house with the democrats and do you think that he can win the house with the democrats? >> there's no question about it. the president has been deliberate about who he endorses. they are for sure winners. the fact that he's saying, there are 17 seats that we have to pick up. if i get on the campaign trail now, do eight of it now, we can
of the debt ceiling, something we have not thought about in a while. pushed back to may of this year, but really weekend will our way through. a ratings downgrade and the economy slowing, so if this budget is really a nonstarter, and it looks like it is back to the drawing board with no compromise in sight we could be facing another lateummer slowdown and the economy certainly does n mean that. lori: we have to go, but i am wondering if this is finally terminated that this proposal which continues to see from the white house whether they want revenue increases, we are seeing how it is such a crimp on economic growth. >> i certainly hope that is not the case. data it will be telling. the one ray of hope is consumer spending is holding up. retail sales. lorithe good old american consumer. always a pleasure. coming up, newly unsealed court documents shedding light on the run-up to the our shooting. "dobbs law" is on this case. and they're concerned that immigration concern is feeling a run for the border. ♪ lori: the stats shows significant increases in the arrests of those attempting
be negotiated as part of the next go-around with the debt ceiling increase. we all remember a couple years ago, this has been an ongoing issue, but the debt ceiling is going to expire in the summer, and i think you're going to see this budget talks begin now and advance until this deadline that's going to come in the summer when the nation's credit will be at risk again, and they're basically going to see if they can get some sort of grand bargain or smaller bargain to get us past the next deadline. the problem is and the president himself says we keep lurching from crisis to crisis. they would like to lay out a longer term program to reduce deficit and invest in the future but they haven't had a lot of success so far. >> guys, lots of movement on gun control this week. lauren, the president is heading now to connecticut on monday to push the senate to act on new gun control measures. do you think it's risky for him politically to keep pressing this if nothing greater than universal background checks can get passed? >> you know, i don't think it's risky for the president. universal background
of problems, is that right? >> that's right. this whole sequestration came about because the debt ceiling crisis in 2011 and that is like a nuclear bomb, we're not going to default on our debt and shut the government down. what should be done, greta, talking about salaries is to tie salaries to doing something and that is have the government spending tied to the state of the economy. you know, traditionally we'd spend about 18, 20% of gdp in government spending. so have a figure like 18, 19% and if it goes above that, then congress's pay is docked and the president's pay is docked and since he has so many perks, perhaps fewer round on the golf course, but have real consequences, personal consequences where you don't hold up your responsibilities. we do it in every other sphere of life. >> it's interesting that we have to put this sort of of draconian real consequences, we want to, over their heads for one simple reason, because they don't do their jobs. and you think they would do it out of a sense of decency or morality when they promise the voters they'd do this. right now i'm practical
have no agreement on how to raise the debt ceiling. the white house will demand new revenues in return for any spending cuts and we'll be right back to where we were in 2011, which is markets going haywire, losing steam on the economic recovery because we can't raise our borrowing limit. do you think we're going to have another debt ceiling fight, if not, how do we get around it? >> that's a great question. that should have been mentioned earlier because of the so-called grand bargain. let's call it agreement with the president and the republicans in congress. i think the timing is the end of july and i think it is crucial that we get it done before then to make sure we don't get into another debt ceiling crisis because it could be detri menal to the economy. if you look at what the s&p 500 says about the debt limit they say let's resolve the problem. in other words there is let's avoid conflict at all costs. that does not resolve the issue, it can make it worse. sometimes there's a notion that if we just get over there everything will be ok. it's not going to be ok. the one downgrade
of raising the debt ceiling, the amount of money the nation is legally allowed to borrow. ♪ oh yeah when it comes to raising the dead ceiling, the president is having a hard time getting it up. seems the gop ain't rubbing him the right way. especially with the country $16.4 trillion in debt. ♪ say we're still in debt but it's all right ♪ ♪ the united states really couldn't get any broker ♪ ♪ got to liquidate its assets just like al roker ♪ >> no other show. no other show can do that. and by the way, the way this works, the stuff i turn down, brian williams does. he is so easy, it's just -- he's the second call. he runs down. >> what jimmy did was brilliant. he had been this star on "saturday night live" and took all that expertise and just made his signature stronger. and in that late-night arena. and each person -- look at "saturday night live." each person becomes a star on that show by doing their own approach to what they think is funny. and it works because it comes from a sincere place. >> i want to show something else that jimmy did that went absolutely viral, dancing
that they did not what we face the crisis in 2011 when the debt ceiling was looming. i was a wake-up call for both of us. we could not just assume that congress would avoid defaulting on our full faith and credit. the business community realized they should help congress what was at stake. we have an alignment of interests. i am not going to say we will always agree but despite tensions you may have heard of or whoever anyone supported in the presidential race, the president has always had an open door. thein the week after election, the president invited in a cross-section of business leaders and asked for help as we face the fiscal cliff and the sequester and debt ceiling. that opened the door and provided opportunities for us to work together. >> another issue area in which you were involved -- the gay and lesbian community. you have been an advocate of same-sex marriage for a longer time than the president. can you tell us about your conversations with him on that issue and how his thinking evolved? he did come around. ofi have been a supporter same-sex marriage. i have a 27-year-old
. but just over the last two years when we had, you know, some very serious problems from the debt ceiling, for example. you know, we didn't grapple with that issue at the very beginning in january, 2011. we waited until the 11th hour in august of 2011 to the final hour on the deadline. ultimately the country experienced the first downgrade in its history of its credit rating. that's going to cost according to the bipartisan policy center which i'm a senior fellow $20 billion over the next ten years. yet we knew the implications and ramifications of deavering, delaying, obfuscating that kind of action. then you look at no budget and i know the senate has finally passed a budget. obviously it has to be reconciled for the first time in four years we didn't address any of the major questions over the last two years. we just neglected, you know, the interest of the country. >> woodruff: what can be done about it? >> i think the american people have to demand change. what i've been saying in my speeches all over the country is that it's time for all of us to provide rewards for those who are wi
. refused to raise the debt ceiling twice, in 2011 and 2013. refused deal on automatic budget cuts. tried to block key cabinet apoin toes. held up appointment of 47 judicial nominees. i mean, id be in hardball time if i kept talking about what they blocked. none of that was done with bush if it was something good for the country even though a lot of us were adamantly opposed to bush. people like ted kennedy said we have to work for the good of the american public. >> right. even if you drop the rhetoric about what's good for the american people, they know, republicans know, that this president, just take health care reform which they adamantly opposed. this president was giving them their party proposal back on a plate. that's not rhetoric. this was a republican plan for health care reform. when you talk about entitlement reforms, when they talk about entitlement reforms, this president has put them on the table. they should take a good offer when they see it. that's what's per plplexing abo the republican strategy. it's all short term. not saying what can we get out of this president tha
the debt ceiling and possible government shutdown. the stock plunged from 115 to 69. 115 to 69. it was a horrendous decline and you missed it! but caterpillar almost immediately recovered, 69 to 117. what a move. sure you had to take some pain if you tried the cold bottom. it went down far more than anyone thought it could. and you had ample earnings risk, like you do now. but what a game you could have had. almost 70% in less than six months. do you honestly believe you have a chance to get anything even remotely like that gain from conagra? hey, i think it's reasonable to expect you might get a 7% return from conagra during that period, including dividends. levels, not much more. so why not just -- why not say, listen, sell cag, buy cat? first, we're just beginning the downgrade estimate cuts for caterpillar. other analysts tomorrow will be slicing an dicing. you have to expect that cat is going to get a real slap chop in the next few days. you know what i mean? maybe right into earnings period. second, the fear trade is still driving money into conagra. and there's enough ho
think this is much more politically about posturing for the end game now, which is the debt ceiling increase and the last possibility for our grand bargain. so i think, you know, local stories like this, and these will get much more attention. >> does this help obama, this stuff? >> i think it helps position him for an end game where we decide cutting aid to students and cutting chemotherapy to medicare patients is not the way we want to go out about getting our fiscal house -- >> here's this powerful picture we think of the sequester cuts. a father in indiana listening to a lottery of names drawn of families who would be cut from their local head start program due to budget cuts. "the associated press" shares this man was spared, rather, but upset about the others being eliminated. not everybody gets in, tom. your party can handle this politically? you're better off with this stuff? >> we are, but more important, aside from that, we're borrowing 40 cents to the dollar. it's unsustainable. there are no good options out there. whether raising taxes, cutting spending. there are no goo
, this grand bargain with speaker boehner since only going back to last summer during that big debt ceiling debate. i think the white house believes this is something that they're prepared to really know to battle on. the president knows he's going to have to get democrats on the table and he's also going to have to get republicans on the table and that's part of his charm offensive. he is going to be having dinner with them. >> this is with senate republicans. house republicans no chance at all until there is some sort of deal. >> this is the first time in history that a president has done a budget after both the house and senate have done a budget. now trying to claim himself at this great guy who is going to bring people together. this is ridiculous. the president has already taken himself out -- >> they haven't passed a budget in washington for years. >> but we haven't had a real budget pass in a long time. fair enough. >> just get moving. >> we'll also hear from the white house on the just released job numbers. >>> plus, reached the final four. but, first, the white house soup of the d
it is a case of boehner over and over and again beginning in the 2011 debt ceiling negotiations and continuing on until now, where he rejects 9 budget before any real negotiations again, he keeps saving liberals from president obama's desire to reach a bipartisan budget deal that would, in fact, cut medicare and social security. in that way they have kind of been united. >> we end up getting nothing because the republicans say no to anything the president puts forward. if the republicans are willing to say yes, liberals would be really mad because what the president is willing it say yes to is stuff that would actually be way more either austere or difficult for populations for people with social security than liberals are willing to see happen, right? >> there is a bit of that. the white house's argument would go this way, they would say, what they want to do is replace the sequester. which the big problem with it is it frontloads all these cuts instead of having them grow over the next ten years, they happen as much this year as next year, as much next year as the year after and that's the o
, the slow decision making that takes place on both sides of atlantic that led to a debt ceiling debacle, a sequestration, and in europe a miserable state of affairs, seen most recently by cypress. i regret to say i still remain a glass half empty person. and even more so today because the biggest threat, the biggest worry that i can see at the moment is that i won't have ali velshi to pu right each week to open his eyes to the sensible views as he goes into whatever myopic he. s. >> i will miss you a great deal, but we'll work together again. otherwise i'll call you and speak to you for a minute. richard quest, my good friend, go well, my friend. >>> the s&p 500 is returning double digits already just four months into the year. should you lock in your gains? i'll talk with some of the best minds in investing about what you need to do with your money after the break. at tyco integrated security, we consider ourselves business optimizers. how? by building custom security solutions that integrate video, access control, fire and intrusion protection. all backed up with world-class monitorin
to the immediate, which is another debt ceiling vote here coming up very soon. i think that's the immediate. get that off the table and at least showing that you're willing to compromise a little bit may help. but at the end of the day, there are a whole bunch of republicans who said, the president said the sky was falling on suquestration. he put it in his budget, we're not compromising. >> let me ask you about the jobs report that came out. 88,000. first of all, economists stopped predicting what the jobs report was going to say because they always look worst or better because they're never right. nonetheless, 88,000 jobs. about half of what they thought it would be. >> less than half, yeah. >> and the jobless rate went down, only because like 500,000 people left the job force. how does that play into the debt talks? how does that play into the budget talks? >> well, a dismal report. there is really disappointing and it comes at a moment when i think the white house would really like us to start thinking this is what we're going it be seeing more and more of here if sequestration continues. th
, the gridlock, the slow decision making that takes place on both sides of the atlantic that led to a debt ceiling debacle, a sequestration, and in europe, a continuing miserable state of affairs, best seen most recently by cyprus. despite all of the natural, innate, good, thrusting forward of the market, i regret to say i still remain a glass half empty person. and even more so today because the biggest threat, the biggest worry that i can see at the moment is that i won't have ali velshi to put right each week to open his eyes to the sensible views as he goes into whatever myop myopics that he wants. >> i will miss you a great deal, my friend, but we'll work together again. otherwise, i'll just call you and speak to you for a minute each week. richard quest, my good friend, go well, my friend. >>> the s&p 500 is returning double digits already just four months into the year. should you lock in your gains? or ride it out? i'll talk with the of the best minds in investing about what you need to do with your money after the break.

a wall. congress shifting to the fight over the debt ceiling. just moments ago, majority leader harry reid pressured republicans to back off their threat to a filibuster, a package of gun control laws. >> we have a responsibility to safeguard these little kids, and unless we do something more than what's the law today, we have failed. i hope republicans will stop trying to shut down debate and start engaging on the tough issues we were sent to washington to tackle. >> let's bring in democratic strategist emily sussman and republican strategist and senior advisor to speaker john boehner, david winston. good day to both of you. emily, is it ten weeks? >> well, i think what we have right now is truly an unprecedented situation when we look at a lame duck. if it is ten weeks. the president has unveiled his own plan to go forward, pushing his own agenda, his legislative agenda, first it was obama for america, now it's organizing for action. so he has an army of people continuing through the country to push on his issues. on the other hand, we also have a republican leadership in the house
interesting we run back into the ceiling debt much later and that rolls up into the fiscal cliff 2.0 in how the government tempts to deal with it. so you may ask yourself we have a portion of the tax increases went through and who knows exactly what congress is going to but it's probably a pretty good guess that we get to the very last minute right before the march 1st effective gate date for the spending cuts and then we get some other short-term extension to add to this made for tv drama that they seem so fond of lately and you wonder where does it get us long term and how are we able to close the gap here the congressional budget office has looked at what they consider to be the most likely outcome of the ongoing negotiations which, is a marshal implementation of these spending cuts and what you see here are two lines. the top line is out lace as a percentage of gdp or government spending as a percentage of gdp and starting today and going out through the end of 2022 and this is a forecast for the next nine years and going below that is rather a new as a% of gdp and what you take way h
on entitlement cuts and especially knowing they have a debt ceiling, bumping up against its limit in a couple of months? exactly. i'm not sure they are going to jump at this. you know, the debt ceiling question gets all mixed in with this, i think. so we go up, i don't know if it's going to be another brink like the brinks we have had, but i think it all becomes part of this larger negotiation. i'm not tremendously optimistic a grand bargain but an interesting approach by the president and maybe it will find some resonance. we can hope they start talking to each other in some way. >> sam stein? >> i'm curious to see what the republican reaction to this budget will be. they are asking for this thing and criticizing the white house and now put it out there and say it doesn't go far enough because clearly have said it will state the middle ground. i've talked to an official administration off set and they say congress will be upset about their tactic here and know they have done this before by not staking out the progressive wing and negotiating to the middle they will get criticized and made it
of compromise. the debt ceiling will come due sometime in august. it is usually hot summer trying to figure out if there is something. jobs report one friday. it was not a stellar report. even the white house admits that the job growth is not as strong as it needs to be. expectations were that the job growth needed to be between 200000 and 230,000. we gained 88,000 jobs. guest: it was definitely disappointed me -- disappointing. it was the 37th month of job growth. should feel optimistic about that. we are facing some serious headwinds with the sequester. we've got ourselves in a situation where we are looking at significant cuts in federal dollars, and people are deeply concerned that that is going to have an effect on the economy. were going to have to watch out for that. host: this in the weekly standard this morning. a huge disparity between those looking for work in those actually able to find a job. guest: it underscores the extraordinary ditch that president obama inherited. i do not know if the weekly standard has short-term memory or long-term memory, but when he took office in 2008, w
and the debt ceiling. bill: monica, give you the last word here, in 15 seconds what scares you the most? >> i agree, bipartisanship is old school thought according to this president. he never reached out to republicans. he never worked with them. give you a quick example in last couple months on the sequester. republicans said okay, let's work with the president on this because these cuts are arbitrary and across the board. let's make an approach that will work for all of us that are more rational, thoughtful cuts. so the republican house passed not one but two bills to carry out the cuts in a more responsible way. bill: nancy pelosi just this week said -- >> they wouldn't take it up. bill: endless courtesy. a bunch of people who do not share that commitment to civility? >> that is all projection, bill. called projection. >> republicans doesn't have again today of their own. until they have that they are mo mortal peril. >> i disagree, doug. it is paul ryan budget. >> that will defeat them, monica. it will just defeat them. bill: to be continued. >> always. bill: deal? >> deal. bill: thanks.
needed help. what was the choice? mitt romney? had that debt ceiling deal in 2007 -- from the program is heritage foundation. they were hiding in the white house. they did not want to talk to us. my mother is fine right now. i might be next. host: you have been motivated call our program this morning. caller: do you know who could have been in office? minorities and women. i sat for hours in the hot sun and looking for the opportunity to vote for this man. i called my senators and congressmen. i do not know what is wrong with this man. host: that is, in ohio. we will get some perspectives and opinions from other callers. social programs are facing a cutback in obama's budget. steven from virginia beach, an independent, what do you think? caller: i think everyone is ignoring the elephant in the room. they are cutting programs like social security and stuff. what they need to look at is the amount we're spending on our military. it is over half the budget. your children did not have health care or education, would you be spending half your paycheck on guns and weapons to bomb these othe
in a new budget deal this summer to deal with the debt ceiling. dennis: i wish it could fall on economic growth that brought in tax money. what happens with the fed and the loose money policies in the meantime given your outlook on the budget and deficit? >> we're telling our clients that there will be a serious discussion in the june fomc meeting that might pare back that $85 billion they add every month to balance sheets. it could go to 40 or 50. a lot depends on economic data between now and june. dennis: i think as wall street we have a very unkind reaction to that if the fed were to start taking back even a tiny bit because overall, the economy, a lot of people think, is still wobbly and it's going along on artificial fumes. do you think the same thing? >> no. i disa grow. here's my quick take. i think we'll have a pleasant surprise in the first quarter g.d.p. despite washington, despite the payroll tax hike, despite sequester. we'll still have decent growth and because of that, the deficit will fall and i will also say some of the fall on the deficit is going to be because economic
